Could Muammar Qadaffi possibly end up in (*gasp*) Gitmo?
The Obama administration, over the last 6 days, has backtracked multiple times on our strategy/plans/endgame for Libya. Various spokespersons are even proffering different scenarios at the same time. “He must go!” is the mantra de jour. But go where? Will he hunker down and hold out. Will he die in a bombing raid; or be assassinated? Or, perchance could he be captured? By whom? Maybe | Read More »
Now that we’re engaged in Libya, hopefully we can finally retrieve the remains of USAF Capt. Paul F. Lorence, KIA in the 1986 attack on Qadafi
Background: In April 1986, Pres. Reagan ordered an attack on Muammar Qadafi’s compound in response to his involvement in the Berlin nightclub bombing earlier that month. The operation was code-named “El Dorado Canyon.” One US aircraft, an F-111F, was lost, along with the aircrew: the pilot, USAF Capt. Fernando L. Ribas-Dominici, and the weapons system operator, USAF Capt. Paul Lorence. It is ironic, given | Read More »
A final question for PJ Crowley: Do you think Raymond Davis would like to change places with Bradley Manning?
Anyone remember Raymond Davis? Aside from his family, loved ones, friends, and co-workers? Yes, events these last few weeks ( Wisconsin, Japan) have totally dominated the news. He continues to be confined in a hell-hole of a Pakistani prison, no doubt subjected to the vilest conditions and treatment. Several weeks ago, the Secretary of State said that this illegal detention of an American with full diplomatic immunity | Read More »
Note to Congressional Republicans: If you can’t defund NPR right now, then you might as well give up and go home .
It hasn’t happened as yet, but in the near future it will soon be obvious that the debate over defunding NPR is symbolic of everything that conservatives are attempting to do to restore fiscal sanity to our government. This debate has been ongoing for years. Recent events have handed us a perfect opportunity to finally achieve this goal. The Juan Williams firing, and now, the | Read More »
House Republicans should “double down” on budget cuts for the next CR
House Republicans got off to a decent start with the just passed CR. They forced $4 billion in REAL spending cuts. And as Obama and the Senate Dems continue to dither and bluster, the House GOP is contemplating the same strategy..another CR, for another few weeks, with another few billion in cuts. In theory, they could achieve their goal of $60-100 billion in cuts that | Read More »
A very happy unintended consequence: Changing public employee retirement plans to defined contribution should help speed “privatization” of Social Security
The struggle to deal with bloated public pensions continues. Less reported, but equally as important, is that already several states and many local governments have already instituted reforms: putting new hires into defined contribution/401k type plans. And some have already taken the step of freezing existing defined benefit plans for current employees, and settign up defined contrubution plans for future benefits. This trend will no | Read More »
Does Haley ( Nikki, not Barbour) mean that Palin won’t run?
First of all, I’m a huge admirer of Sarah Palin. I’m still undecided as to whom I’ll support for the nomination, but she’s in my top 3. And her courage in standing up to the slander and vituperation of the left and the MSM, as well as speaking the truth about the important issues of our day has been key to revitalizing the conservative movement | Read More »
Gov. Walker should “pardon” the Wisconsin 14
The 14 Wisconsin Democrat senators continue to play hide-and-seek. Here’s a way for Gov. Walker and the GOP to change the dynamic, and increase their advantage. The Dems fled in order to prevent a quorum in the Senate, and thus are preventing a vote on the Governor’s financial legislation. The Senate Majority leader has several times sent WI State Troopers to their homes, to bring them to the | Read More »
Hey RNC…did you watch MTP? And you’re letting THESE people, and Politico, host the first debate? Are you nuts?
I assume someone, anyone, at the RNC watches the Sunday talking head shows. David Gregory continued his ambush tactics today, interviewing Scott Walker. Totally ignoring Walker’s reasoned responses, he often misstated facts. And then he spent several minutes asking Walker about the fake phone call from a liberal blogger (one who has since been outed as having rejoiced in the death and dismemberment of American | Read More »
The mathematics of the Wisconsin teachers protest..or why is the union going bats**t?
The Wisconsin teachers union is going all out, or maybe all in is the better term, to try and stop needed reforms. Are they totally oblivious to what’s going on in the country, what happened last November? I can’t believe they are that dense, but in fact, there is a really good reason for their response. .The union’s survival is threatened. Here’s the numbers. According to | Read More »
